Love this beer. Had it on tap for the first time a few years ago and was blown away. Was thrilled when I found it at a beer warehouse in 22oz bottles. Even though it is $9 a bottle, it is well worth the price.
Appearance-dark like coffee, as one would expect from a stout. Would have liked to have seen a thicker head on this beer when poured into my glass. Very thin head, even after a hard pour.
Smell-vanilla and coffee-would love to have a candle in my office that smells like this beer!
Taste-very impressed that this beer tastes just like it smells-a perfect mix of coffee, sweet vanilla, and a hint of caramel. Finishes with an eversoslight taste of alcohol. Must be careful with this beer as it's hard to tell it is 9.5%.
Mouth- good thickness, not syrupy like some sweet stouts.
Overall-an outstanding beer to enjoy with friends after a meal or an evening out. Definitely a dessert beer, don't see this pairing well with meat and potatoes-would go well with cheesecake, chocolate or doughnuts. I recommend giving this a try.

On tap at the Local Taphouse, way back in October 2012 I think. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a dark brown colour, lovely nitro head; yellowish beige nice and dense, retaining beautifully. Looks beautiful.
Fuck. Me. Holy shit that smells as good as God's favourite fried chicken restaurant kitchen. But completely unlike a fried chicken restaurant kitchen, more like caramel, toasty and sweet and vanilla custard. Notwithstanding it just smells amazingly different for a beer, it just smells fucking delicious. Holy shit.
Taste is similar. Bit of roasty malt around the edges, but loads more of that milky, custardy goodness. Yeah, caramel with slight nutty edge and some slight darker edge which needn't be there but still makes you feel like it's keeping it more grounded. Retains a bitterness on the back but for the most part, amazingly sweet desserty beer, so smooth and creamy. It's becoming a cliché in my tasting this beer but holy shit.
Smooth, velvety. Just a whisper of booze on the back. Lovely feel.
About as miraculous a dessert beer as you could dream of. Sweet, delicious, yet without being bogged down in its own self satisfaction. Slight edge to keep you drinking, as if more enticements were needed.
